Is Your Life a ‘Teeter -Totter’?


Some friends and I were talking about ‘Balance’.  Have you ever felt like your life is out of balance, out of kilter (is that the right word?), or maybe you feel overwhelmed and out of control.  Most of us know that feeling!


I think it is really about ‘harmony’.  Balance assumes things are equal; work, home, recreation, spiritual. It can seem like a teeter-totter, up and down, up and down, to keep balance.  When our lives get out of balance, it is because it’s hard to keep all of the areas equal, and let’s face it, there are times when balance just isn’t going to happen.  Maybe it’s really about ‘harmony’. 


In a band or an orchestra, depending on the movement or the music being played, sometimes the horns are louder, and then maybe the flute comes in, followed by the sweet tones of the piano.  All together it makes for a beautiful song, with a little clash here and there, maybe big loud cymbals, and the relief of a harp or melodic violin line.  The music can be beautiful… but not necessarily ‘balanced’.


In our orchestra of life, our days are filled with many ‘instruments, or choices.  Maybe you have a job that you love and it is taking more than it’s equal share of your time, particularly if you are building your own business. Perhaps you are in the season of life where you children are taking most of your time, or an elderly parent, or you are dealing with an illness of someone you love.  You know what it is in your life. We can still have harmony even when we don’t have balance.


There are times when ‘balance’ just isn’t going to happen. Harmony seems to be more realistic. When the areas of our lives are blended together for our ‘life’ orchestra, it can lead to wonderful music, just waiting for the next musical ‘movement’.   We are in the middle of our ‘Concerto’, our ‘Symphony’. Hang in there, it’s not over yet.  The best is yet to come!
